From Miami to Palm Beach, here are 18 luxury buildings launching sales
By Bill Cary
Miami and the rest of the South Florida market has a rich mix of new luxury residential developments set to launch sales this year, along with several long-anticipated high-end projects that have been in the works for years and will finally be wrapping up construction in 2019 and opening their doors to new homeowners.
Palm Beach County looks to be particularly active, said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman's Florida Brokerage.
“We’re seeing a new wave of opportunity there, a rebirth—West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Delray,” he said.
Fort Lauderdale, which is just to the south of Palm Beach in Broward County, is also quite active in the luxury condo sector, he said. “Seeing a complete recategorization of itself”—it’s no longer just a spring break or vacation market.
Below are some new developments making news, starting the first quarter of 2019 and running right through the end of the fourth quarter, when the ultra-luxe Turnberry Ocean Club on Sunny Isles Beach is expected to open its doors.
